Divide : bridging the gap between women [2013-2014 v. 1 no. 1]

by Messick, Stefani, Andrus, Raven, Caradine, Kadesha

Abstract

A magazine created by Colorado College students as part of the course, FG200 Introduction to Feminist Thought, taught by Assistant Professor Heidi Lewis during Block 6, 2014.

Note

Divide is "dedicated to bridging the gap between white women and women of color in hopes of creating a discourse around race and feminism. 'In feminist circles of late, much is being said about the need to acknowledge differences in the lives of women and to aim towards a spiritual and functional unity not informing others about issues relating to Women of Color.' Too often are women of color taken out of the equation when discussion surrounding possible solutions to problems women face in the workplace, in the home, and in education arise. Our goal is to provide a magazine that offers women of all colors the opportunity to speak out and express their opinions on beauty, women’s health, the workplace, schooling, popular media, and politics, while having the opportunity to learn and en-gage in a discussion with one another.”--Letter from the editor, Jazlyn Andrews.

Articles include: I work hard BITCH: the racial and gender divide of women in the workforce -- Exclusive interview with Dana Asbury -- Race and sexuality in "Orange is the new Black" -- White mothers v. Black mothers: TV edition.
